So disappointed by Abu Elias. Clear sign that Anthony cant be trusted anymore as a reliable source. Got the marinated chicken legs, raw meat and ribs. The bad: chicken thighs sadly had to be thrown out the next day. It was old and smelly. For the price tbh i was expecting fresh chicken. For it to spoil within a day isnt a sign of fresh chicken. It was stored along with the ribs which were amazing, so definitely not a fridge issue on my end. The raw meat was not handled according to Canadian guidance for handling raw meat which was a major disappointment given that they make “kebbe nayeh”. The ribs were delicious so no issue there. Prices are really inflated and doesn’t justify the quality.

Delicious food, tastes just like in Lebanon. I can't believe I've waited all this time to discover this place. Treat yourself and go the mixed meat platter. I see some comments here saying it's overpriced, it's just not. This is MUCH better than what you can get from the big Lebanese food chains, it's incomparable. The meat is flavorful, fresh, juicy. It comes with all the right fixings. Their potatoes are d delicious too. Also, please give a try to their hummus. This is what real hummus should taste like. This is the only place I've tried that serve a proper hummus in Montreal (and trust me, I've tried many Lebanese restaurants on the island and in Laval for the past 10+ years). This would be considered a good hummus even in Lebanon. It is creamy, and you can really taste the tahini. Ordered through doordash and it arrived quickly and well packaged.

Review of Abou Elias Restaurant: I recently had the opportunity to visit Abou Elias Restaurant, and unfortunately, I left with a rather disappointing experience. While I had heard positive things about their sandwiches and service, my personal encounter was far from satisfying. One of the first things I noticed was the size of the sandwiches. They were incredibly tiny, which left me feeling a bit short-changed. It seemed like there was barely any filling, making the overall taste and satisfaction quite underwhelming. To make matters worse, the meat in the sandwiches was extremely chewy. It felt like it had been overcooked or lacked tenderness. This greatly affected the overall enjoyment of the meal, as I had expected a better quality of meat. Moreover, the service I received when requesting a bit of garlic sauce on the side was quite disappointing. The employee seemed irritated by the request and proceeded to lecture us about their policy of not providing additional condiments. Their attitude was unprofessional and left a negative impression. It is disheartening when a customer's reasonable request is met with such hostility. The most disappointing aspect was the stark contrast between the restaurant's online presence and the actual experience. While they may portray themselves as generous and offering amazing service on various YouTube channels, the reality was far from it. It felt as if they were merely pretending to provide exceptional service for the sake of online appearances. Overall, my visit to Abou Elias Restaurant was far from satisfactory. The sandwiches were tiny, the meat was chewy, and the service was below par. I would advise potential customers to approach this establishment with caution, as the actual experience may not align with the advertised image.

The tawook sandwich takes you right away to Lebanon, but you definitely need more than 1. Staff are friendly and the owner is so kind with his customers.
